Easter Egg


I thought this long, long winter would never end, but finally there are signs of spring around the house! Snowdrops and purple hyacinths everywhere!

With Easter coming closer now, I made this egg of styrofoam, little pins and green and yellow spangles and beads.


On request of a reader here is the tutorial but unfortunately it's without pictures to illustrate. Sorry about that, but it's quite a lot of work to attach all the beads and spangles to the egg one by one. I don't feel like making another one right now ('cause new, fresh projects are calling me, haha). It's very easy to make the eggs though and you don't really need pictures.

What you need:
* styrofoam egg
*acrylic paint (I used yellow)
*spangles (I used stars, flowers and little circles)
* little beads (I used green ones)
*little pins 
All the materials you need are available in craft stores.

First you paint the egg and let it dry for a couple of hours. After that you attach beads and spangles in a pattern you like with the pins. I hadn't a pattern in mind, just did what came up in my head. I started with a circle and worked around it.
Cover the whole egg, except the bottom, because that will make the egg stand upright.

Good luck!
